  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup rolled (old-fashioned) oats
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons milk of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Poke holes in the sweet potatoes with the tines of a fork. Roast sweet potatoes for 30 minutes, directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet until soft and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, while sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the crumble: Add oats to a blender. Blend on high until a coarse oat flour is created. Add to a bowl. Add pecans, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup honey, and 1/2 tablespoon oil and stir. Reduce heat to 375 degrees (when the casserole is assembled, the dish will go back into the oven). Allow sweet potatoes to cool.
  4. When cool enough to handle, peel the sweet potatoes, discard the skins, and put the potatoes in a bowl. Add milk, vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons honey to sweet potatoes. Mash.
  5. Put the mashed sweet potatoes in an 8 x 8-inch baking dish or a casserole dish. Add the crumble in an even layer on top. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes until the crumble has hardened and browned on top. Enjoy!

    This was VERY good. I do not like real sweet, sweet potatoes and this recipe nailed it. I did, however, double the vanilla only because I love the taste. Instead of roasting the potatoes in the oven, I made them in the microwave. I thought the amount of topping was way too much though so next time I will probably half the amount. All in all, delicious. I give this recipe 5 stars

    Is this a dish I can make ahead of time?

      Yes! This can be made the day before and refrigerated overnight. Reheat at 325 until heated through.
